Truck Art Project 2010

I was clearing out my MacBook from the unknown debris that is filling out my hard drive, when I found these. Photos I took for our Cultural Olympiad. Remember that amazing year filled with that heart warming activity that is London Olympics?

Well for those who don’t know the Cultural Olympiad project started two years prior to the Olympics. Arts organisations and museums were participating in a range of activities, concentrating on exchange programmes. Ours was Truck Art. It was really fun for me. I did not only the marketing for the project, but also took these photos, made two videos, managed press, prepared and delivered the big launch.

I thought what made it fun was that the young people involved in the production, pictured here are Ciara and Kiera, who learned techniques and the story behind the Pakistani artisan Haider’s work. The decorated Bedford truck is now a part of the museum’s collection.
